My friend, Erin, just had the sweetest cupcake-themed party for her daughter, Sara's, 3rd birthday. Were there fun games? Yes. Were there adorable little girls in party dresses everywhere you looked? Yes. Was there gorgeous, sugary food? Oh, mama, yes. Like all good 3-year olds, Sara is a huge fan of sweets, so what better occasion to let loose than a birthday party? The kids played pin the cherry on the cupcake, made cupcake necklaces, took turns pulling ribbons out of the cupcake pinata before bagging up the explosion of treats, and even snacked on savory cheese and crackers along with Erin's delicious homemade sodas. For party favors, we received the most adorable tiny cupcakes baked in baby food jars and packed up in pretty cellophane bags along with a jar of sprinkles.
My own daughter had to go straight into the bath when we got home, which I think is an indicator that the shindig was a complete, sweet success.
